Engrossing drama, never dipping into melodrama. Uses lots of gorgeously-lit one/shots close up keep the tension and emotion high. The girlfriend has a face made for noir, especially her eyes...check this one out.

Subject: What a story!
Thoroughly enjoyable film, the story is engrossing, believable, and worth every minute of your viewing time.

I would highly recommend this to anybody who enjoys films based on fact. There's a love story intertwined with a man who has been sentenced to death in the electric chair. How much better could it get? I loved this film, and I think many others would too. Watch it.
